    Long Island Rail Road. LIRR

    welcome and hope you enjoy your in New York. Hope you have a Jacket!!!


    There is not a rail station that goes near the Nassau Coliseum however. I don't work in the city or take the train to often so someone might be able to speak to stops and scheduals....

    go to Penn Station -- 34th and 7ave.. below MSG.

    Get yourself to the LIRR -- jump on any train which stops at Westbury -- during rush hour, you can get one every 20 min or so. Ticket via vending machine or the at a booth below the main board. Grab a schedule so you can see what trains to catch on the way back. Or you can ask a conductor on the train out for return trip times.

    Once at Westbury, just grab a cab to Nassau Coliseum. Shouldn't take more than 15 minutes. Right down Post Ave.

    If you have extra time, go into Marriott to talk hockey at the bar & grill -- or just walk across to arena.

    Enjoy!

    Going back will definitely suck because that hour of the night westbound I think trains only come every hour or so, so if the timing is not good that could be a long wait.

    Ask Eric Cairns. Start off with a healthy genetic makeup, with minimal neanderthal traits such as bushy eyebrows and an upright spinal casting. The use of tools and complex linguistics, such as adverbs and prepositions are a plus. Try not purchasing a Stanley Cup as well.
